It seems that 2021 has brought even more uncertainties than the past two years combined. Nobody could have expected it, and all of us have probably hoped that the pandemic would be over by the end of last year.
Coworking spaces have risen to the occasion and proven themselves to be a solid solution for all of the remote workers in 2021 that wanted a change of pace. Freelancers, small businesses, even big companies have resorted to renting coworking office spaces.
Even though some would argue that renting a coworking office space isn’t the way to go, there are many reasons why this might be one of the best decisions remote workers in 2021 can make.
Coworking in a Nutshell
Coworking office spaces provide remote workers with a wide range of different office spaces from hot desks, individual work stations to private offices.
They originated from the need to give people a more comfortable and more flexible working environment, at a lower price than renting a traditional office space.
There are various types of coworking office spaces – basic, that host a variety of people doing different types of work, and those oriented towards hosting a specific type of workers, for example, programmers, or accountants etc.
Coworking spaces are the first step forward for remote workers in 2021, and the way up the business ladder. There are plenty of reasons why this is so.
Coworking Saves Money
Renting a traditional office space costs a small fortune. When you are at the start of your career, or you have just founded your small business, you are not in a position to pay so much for that kind of space.
On the other hand, if you are a freelancer, apart from renting a coworking office space, you have two options. Work from home or to go to a café for a change of scenery. Neither option is sustainable in the long run.
Imagine going to a café every day to work. Of course you are going to have a cup of coffee, who wouldn’t? Then you get hungry, order a sandwich, then another cup of coffee.
The month passes and you realize you have spent a great deal of your earnings while, actually, working. So you quit on the idea of working from a café and come back home.
On the other hand, if you are somebody that doesn’t like sitting alone all day at home, that just won’t do.
That is why coworking would be the best option for all of the remote workers in 2021, from all around the world. It not only saves you money, but also gives you the opportunity to take that money and invest it in something work related.
And you get all the coffee you want – for free.
Take Circle Hub, for example. We have a wide range of office spaces on offer, and, what is also important, an enormous relaxation area, where you can sit back and relax, and have a cup of free coffee alone or with someone you met there. This is another important benefit of working at a coworking office space.
You Get a Fantastic Opportunity for Networking
Networking is the single most important thing you have to take into consideration if you want to succeed in business. Who you know is sometimes more important than what you know. Even though it sounds like a paradox, that’s the way the cookie crumbles.
How often do remote workers get the opportunity to meet somebody that can actually help them make an advancement at their field of work?
Very rarely, for sure.
There is just no opportunity to meet somebody new when you are sitting all day on your couch, working from home.
That is why coworking office spaces would be a perfect solution for you, because you never know who you are going to meet.
It may be a potential business partner, or a coworker that can be a great asset to your team. Every day you have the possibility of meeting someone new, that can possibly change your working life forever.
The best part about coworking office spaces is that they accommodate a plethora of different businesses. This gives you the opportunity of meeting somebody completely unrelated to your line of work, but who can help you see things from a different perspective.
A different perspective is sometimes the only thing we need to solve a major problem, not just in business, but in life, too, right?
You Get the Equipment You Need
Remote workers in 2021 can find working from home quite frustrating, if they lack the necessary equipment to do their job well. Things get even worse if their work depends on having a fast Internet connection, when in reality they don’t have one.
In this case, the best solution would be to put their faith in the hands of professionals and rent an office space at a coworking company. Since they are offering office spaces, you know they have to offer quality equipment to go with it.
Every coworking office space will provide you with high-speed WiFi, state-of-the-art printers and many other things that you just wouldn’t be able to afford at home. So, it will save you not only a lot of time and money, but a great deal of your nerves.
It Gives You the Flexibility You Need
Many people quit working for a company set in a traditional office space and having the traditional 9 to 5 office hours because they cannot stand the pressure of every day looking the same.
On the other hand, some people have obligations that just cannot fit in the 9 to 5 working time span, so they are forced to quit.
That is why working in a coworking office space would be perfect for everybody who likes to define working hours for themselves.
No more 9 to 5 nightmare, no more awful commute, no more of the more or less same, every day.
At a coworking office space, you can come and go as you please. This means you can leave as soon as you finish with the workload for the day. You can plan your day in a more relaxed manner, you can spend more time with your family. The world is practically your oyster, so to speak.
One of the best things about flexible working hours is that there are no more long commutes. By choosing when to come to work, you can choose to avoid the rush hours and arrive to and from your office more quickly.
Imagine the time saved!
Flexible working hours are also perfect for people that just can’t stand getting up in the morning. We all have different biorhythms, so forcing somebody to get up early and start working, if they aren’t a morning person, would be, well, a crime against their nature.
At coworking office spaces, remote workers in 2021 can work at night even, because they are open 24/7. And if you think you would be alone, rest assured, there are many more night owls than one would assume.
It Raises Your Productivity Levels
Some remote workers in 2021 may like working from home. It gives them the necessary peace and privacy. However, the pandemic has forced many employees to become remote workers in 2021, and not by choice. Although it is beneficial for some, working from home could be quite stressful for others.
When you are at the office you finish your workload and go home to deal with home and family-related things. On the other hand, when you are working from home, there isn’t a strict line between home-related issues and the workload. Some can feel a bit overwhelmed. If you have a big family, this would make it a lot harder to find a private sanctuary of your own, where you can work in peace.
In addition, there are always dishes that need washing, laundry that needs folding or lunch that needs to be made. So, in the end, you feel more stressed and disorganized working from home than from the office.
If you decide to work from a coworking office space it will actually make you more productive, even more than working from a traditional office space.
At a co-shared office space, you don’t just choose the time when you are going to arrive, but you also choose the time when you are going to leave. This means that, as soon as you finish your work, you can go. If that doesn’t give you the proper stimulation to finish everything quickly, we don’t know what does.
Working in a communal office space gives you a push to finish what you need, for as long as you need, and to leave enough time for your house, family and friends.
It gives your life more freedom, yet more organization and order.
It Gives You the Feeling of Belonging to a Community
Working from home can be a lonesome endeavor. For some, it is the right way to go, but for others, it can mean feeling very alone and abandoned.
At a co-shared office space, everybody is working together, but apart. You don’t have the sense that you are alone in the world. Everybody is there, doing the same thing as you, pushing you to be better and do better. It’s an amazing community. Many friendships are forged in such places and the positive working atmosphere may just be the thing you need for your big break.
Coworking Shows That You Mean Business
Sending a business proposal from an unknown address doesn’t show that you are serious about presenting your work. Next to networking, branding your business is the second most important thing you have to think about.
Having a membership at a coworking office space shows that you are serious about professional advancement. It gives your name and your business a great backup.
Being a member of a coworking community means that you get a professional mailing address. That speaks volumes about where your company is at the moment. It gives it credibility and more people will be willing to work with someone that sends a job offer from a professional mailing address.
You even get a personal assistant that will deal with all the boring administrative work. This means that you can focus on actually doing your job.
Amenities Are a Godsend
Renting a coworking office space will not just enable remote workers in 2021 to work from a proper office, it will give them different opportunities to enjoy themselves while working.
How often do you find yourself working when suddenly you realize you’ve reached a breaking point and you need a break?
Well, if you are at a coworking office space, then good for you. Every co-shared office space gives you a wide variety of options on how to spend that break time. These amenities are everything.
Their coffee lounges are, well, famous. Amazing spaces for all you coffee lovers, waiting for you to come and drink your coffee in peace, or in company. And it’s not only about coffee break spaces.
Some people like diffusing while exercising. Again, this is not a problem at a coworking office space. Almost every space of the kind provides you with a gym where you can exercise and unwire. There are also private nooks for the ones that need a nap, gaming rooms for those that like to relax while playing games, even wellness areas.
Imagine having the possibility of going for a massage every time you feel stressed! This is something everybody should try, not just remote workers.
Meeting and Event Rooms at Your Disposal
Being a serious entrepreneur means that, at some point, you will have to hold a meeting or an event, or a presentation. We can agree on the fact that remote workers in 2021 rarely have the space needed to do such a thing.
Renting a coworking office space would give you the possibility of using their event spaces, which are sometimes capable of accommodating more than a hundred people.
Circle Hub has amazing event spaces at our premises, which we are sure will meet your needs.
There you can meet potential clients, hold interviews and presentations. In addition, this will give your company and your brand even more credibility.
